Gone fishing--the Color room palette #18

So this past week I was looking at some blogs and came across a super cute layout inspired by this:
I hadn't ever heard of them before, and I REALLY like the sketch and colors I thought why, not give it a try?
I think this is the first time I have EVER printed clip art from the web and used it on a page. I like these little fishies....
You can't go fishing without your fishing pole right?
I made my own using a piece of brown cardstock, my mini mister, string, pliers, and a stick pin.
I first cut measured the height of my "pole" about 6" then I trimmed the side down to around 2" and misted it. Then I began to roll it together, after I got it the right shape I blew it dry with my heat embossing gun.
I had stick pins on my desk--I have no idea where they came from! And *CAREFULLY* using my pliers I bent it in the shape of a hook. I then cut my string the length I wanted. I tied the string to my pin before attaching to the page. Then glued one end of the string under the pole. And the hook I glued down using a glue dot which I trimmed smaller with my non stick scissors. Sound complicated? It wasn't and I had SO MUCH FUN trying to stick with these colors and sketch.
If you are wanting a challenge check them out HERE.
Thanks for stopping by!
